Missouri Office of Homeland Security Launch SafeNation Suspicious Activity Reporting Tool

SafeNation App

Awareness is an important part of preventing threats in Missouri. We need your assistance in the fight against terrorism. Our greatest resources in the detection of suspicious activity are the citizens of Missouri.

The Missouri Office of Homeland Security, in partnership with the three Missouri fusion centers, Kansas City Regional Fusion Center (KCRFC), Missouri Information Analysis Center (MIAC), and the St. Louis Regional Fusion Center (STLFC), have launched a new tool to instantly report suspicious activity. SafeNation is a mobile suspicious activity reporting application that allows citizens to submit anonymous reports that pertain to potentially suspicious activity observed, known or suspected.

SafeNation is now available to the citizens of Missouri for download (free) in the Apple Store and Google Play. Submitted tips will be routed and addressed by the Missouri fusion centers within your area. As always, call 9-1-1 in case of an emergency.

This initiative will enhance Missouri’s partnership with the US Department of Homeland Security’s See Something Say Something campaign. Please share this announcement with your citizens and within your community and respective disciplines.

With the potential threat of significant icing beginning Friday the 13th we ask that you remain off the roadways if at all possible. If you must go out BE PREPARED. Roads could be closed due to icing, accidents or fallen trees/power lines. Any one of these may cause you to be stuck on the roads for some time. At a minimum you should have proper clothing (including hat and gloves), a blanket, drinking water, window scraper, cell phone (with charger) and a full tank of gas. Please be careful!!!!

Vehicle Break-Ins

Vehicle break-ins are an all too common crime in Richmond Heights and the region. We highly recommend that you secure your vehicles by locking all doors and removing any items of value. If you are unable to remove valuable items from your car, please conceal them so that they are not visible. This is especially important if you leave your vehicle for long periods of time in commuter lots or parking garages. This type of crime is a crime of opportunity. Don’t give criminals an opportunity to victimize you.
